"NOODLES" potluck and discussion 11/11/09

Have you read Acupuncture is Like Noodles yet?

If you have, you are invited to a NOODLES potluck and discussion on Wednesday, November 11th, 2009, starting at 6pm at Sarana Community Acupuncture.

Please bring a noodle dish (or something that goes well with noodles) to share and your "NOODLES" thoughts. Sarana will supply silverware and compostable plates and cups (but if you prefer, you can bring your own non-disposable dishes). If you need directions to Sarana, please visit this link.

Please e-mail to let us know if you are coming (regrets are unnecessary).

Looking forward to a lively discussion and yummy noodles!

Fall News

Fall greetings!

We hope you are enjoying the change of seasons and staying healthy. If you feel your body is struggling with the arrival of colder weather, maybe it's time for an acupuncture "tune up"!

1. Expanded hours on Tuesdays!

Our new acupuncturist, Ellie Schafer, L.Ac, will offer acupuncture treatments on
Tuesday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm, starting October 13th.
You can schedule your appointments online through this link. Ellie will continue to work on Fridays from 1-4pm. For more about Ellie, see our webpage.

2. Save the date: Wednesday Dec. 9th - Miriam Lee Tribute Day and a Winter Holiday Gathering

Dr. Miriam Lee, was one of the pioneering acupuncturists in the United States and was responsible for the legalization of acupuncture in California. She popularized a simple 5-point protocol which she showed to be helpful for the majority of common health complaints. In the acupuncture community this treatment has become known as the "Miriam Lee tune up". To learn more about this revolutionary acupuncturist, check out this blog post by Circle Community acupuncture in San Francisco.
Dr. Lee passed away this year, and on her birthday, in tribute to her life's work, we will offer free acupuncture using her tune up treatment.
In the evening we will gather to share some holiday cheer - stay tuned for details!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
